Hard cow’s milk cheese with a firm, smooth texture and fruity, spicy and tangy flavour. Aged 3-4 months. Appenzeller® cheese is exclusively manufactured and matured, according to the traditional recipe, in the semicantons of Appenzell Innerrhoden and Appenzell Ausserrhoden as well as in parts of the cantons of St. Gallen and Thurgau. It obtains its uniquely spicy taste from the loving application of the mysterious herbal brine, the composition of which is a closely guarded secret. Grate this cheese into recipes, melt over gratin dishes, or enjoy on a cheeseboard with fresh or dried fruit, toasted nuts and crackers.
